Letís name & honour the victim: Tharoor

New Delhi: Union HRD Minister Shashi Tharoor today favoured making public the identity of the 23-year-old gang-rape victim wondering what interest is served by keeping her name under wraps even as the Congress dismissed the suggestion as his personal opinion.

Tharoor also said the revised anti-rape legislation should be named after the victim if her parents do not have an objection. Under the law, the identity of a rape victim cannot be disclosed and publishing her name is an offence under the Indian Penal Code. ó PTI
